ONLINE RETAILER EBAY Inc is to create 450 new jobs in Dundalk, the company has confirmed.

The jobs will be in the areas of customer services, sales and compliance. The announcement was made by Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Jobs Minister Richard Bruton today.

The announcement is a further employment boost for the area: the jobs will be based at an operations centre in Dundalk  alongside the company’s PayPal subsidiary, which last year announced it was to create 1,000 new jobs at the facility.

EBay Inc has been in Ireland since 2003 and currently employs 2,300 people between its PayPal and eBay facilities in Blanchardstown in Dublin and Dundalk Business Campus.

The new jobs were supported by the Department of Jobs and IDA Ireland.

Information about the job vacancies can be found at ebaycareers.com.
